- Praising employees boosts morale and boosts performance. Here are some suggestions on easy ways to praise:
- Practice "concentrated" recognition. Call a team member into your office just to thank him or her for doing a good job. Dont discuss any other issue, or else you will dilute the effect.
- Spread the "wealth". Managers rarely accomplish anything without a lot of help. When you receive recognition yourself, acknowledge the contributions of your staff.
- Ask a senior manager to attend a team meeting during which you recognize people for their achievements.
- The next time you hear a positive remark about someone, repeat it to that person as soon as possible.
